Four Chrome Plugins for SEO.

  1. Page Monitor Chrome Extension

Larger organisations sometimes may by-pass the SEO, if there are departmental siloes – various content team, multiple product owners, etc. This is where this tool comes in, I’ve been using it now for a number of months, and I use it mainly as a back-up to Episerver page change reports. (Episerver is the CMS we use at Marie Curie)

Monitor pages for SEO

I also use it to track my brand pages on Wikipedia, you can also use it to monitor influencers LinkedIn pages, Amazon and Ebay price changes, etc.

How to monitor website page changes with Page Monitor Chrome Extension

 

On the page that you are interested in and hit the top-right icon, next to your address bar. Start tracking website for changes with “Monitor This Page”

Once something changes on the page, the icon will light up green, as above. If you click on the icon you are given the option to stop monitoring, Mark as visited or view the changes.
